wrote nine years ago for a closely divided court that said while generally speaking government can't make a distingsion on race it can do so in school admissions because getting a racially diverse campus provides a better education. that was the court's holding. after the argument today it seems clear the court is not going to go and overrule that precedent but the problem many of the justices had is how do you know when you have enough diversity. the university of texas has an unusual system. it automatically admits anybody who graduates in the top 10% academically of any high school in texas. that gets a fair amount of diversity on campus because many of those schools tend to be racially more uniform, predominantly black or hispanic and tend to get versity. the problem for perhaps the majority of the justices how do you know when there's enough diversity. what the school says is, we don't want merely diversity in numbers. we want african-american students who are interested in fencing and speaking greek and studying architecture and hispanic students who are great fencers or ballet

big investments because they don't know if they sell to the federal government whether that customer will be around in january. they hear we might have a recession. the politicians can't agree on moving the cliff. we need to be cautious extrapolating september's good news to the rest of the year. >> and from that perspective, the $64,000 political question is, what about that jobs number that is going to come out on the friday before election day? >> it's -- >> the last news people will get. >> the flip of the coin. we don't know what's going to happen. this number surprised many ways. the number that came out a month ago -- >> which was weak. >> was very weak. don't know how it's going to cut. most people's impressions of the economy, irrespective of what they hear the day before, are more or less fixed. nice headline to see the unemployment rate go down, but most people are looking around themselves and their communities to see if they feel better. a lot of sort of talk, a lot of smoke but i don't think it's going to fundamentally change the result. >> one quick question a

. there's not a rent a cop around the corn. they barely have an government let alone to train people to provide the security needed in benghazi and tripoli. you have to look at the country as a whole but i mean look at the result, the consequences. an active al qaeda, other terrorists that are active and we have four dead americans at a compound that as a member of congress i can't visit. the fbi had trouble getting in there to visit it. so that's -- it's still a problem. >> jason chaffetz, going to be an interesting hearing tomorrow, thank you very much for previewing it today. >> up next, sentencing day for jerry sandusky. you're watching "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. getting the right amount of sleep not only improving your mood, enhances learning, memory and health. daily exercise can help you get a better night's rest. for the average adult doctors recommend getting seven hours of sleep. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

government and i don't think that's what america believes in. >> overnight polls and "the denver post" give round one to romney. as a republican challenger went after the president's record. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, and economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spent his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. >> the president faulted romney for being too vague. >> at some point, i think the american people have to ask themselves, is the reason that governor romney is keeping all of these plans to replace secret because they're too good? is it because that somehow middle class families are going to benefit too much from them? no. >> the sharpest exchanges over taxes and deficits. >> he is saying that he is going to pay for by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem that is he's been asked over a hundred times how you would close those deductions and loopholes, and he hasn't been able to identify them. >>
